The Essential Scorsese/De Niro

Need a crash course in the work of America’s greatest living director and his most frequent on-screen collaborator, but don’t know where to start?

1 of 10
Mean Streets (1973)
Scorsese’s breakout feature, a perceptive story of two lifelong friends, played by Robert De Niro and Harvey Keitel, who take very different trajectories in New York’s criminal underworld. Its handheld cinematography, fractured editing and rock ’n’ roll soundtrack perfectly capture the grit of 1970s Little Italy.
